Shipping might be cheaper for you in CA via the HK website.

Ain't that how it always works?

I finally heard back from Banana Hobby. They want to know what I want to know. I wrote:
There are a lot of us interested in this plane (just check the other forums). We would like to see more pictures, specifically the cockpit and space inside the fuselage for gear, also something in the picture to reference and give a sense of scale, and ideally some video.
Does the main wing come apart (2 1.2m wings)?
How are the wings secured to the fuselage?
How many and what type of spars support the wings?
Is there spar supporting the length of the plane (wings to tail)?
What size prop comes with the kit?
What size prop can the airframe accommodate?
Is that a wheel beneath the fuselage and the tail?
It appears on the new version of your site that this plane is sold out, but on the other site it's available. What is it's stock status?

What else would you like to know? I'll make sure I add that.

Back in stock?

Too funny! Just got a "back-in-stock" email notification for the ARF versionfrom BH right now. I'm guessing that all this is related to the bugs in their new website. So still waiting for a nice coupon code.

They have always provided me great value with timely professional service, of course i have reasonable expectations of such value priced hobby products, whereas, i find that most complaints regarding the merchandise/service are more often than not by newbs with wholly unrealistic expectations.of the discount rc market. Exclusivity can be very short lived or forever, really no way to know as the details of these business relationships are strictly confidential.

So, has anyone pulled the trigger on this giant yet? I was trying to holdout for a discount code, but my patience/willpower is wavering. ...trying to fight the temptation.

Go for it, doubletap. A $10-20 discount is not very significant in the long run. I'm just wanting to know more specifics before ordering.

I'm going to order when I get back down to Yuma. Hopefully the freight won't be as bad to there. Looks like a monster! I've got an HK Easy Fly and that is huge, but not as big as this. There goes my last remaining space in my garage!

Yeah, BH is losing out to lots of potential sales, because their competitors Nitro/HP is just absolutely flooding the net and email with one after another discounts, but too bad they don't carry the Super Sky Surfer!

BH website is going crazy, it keeps kicking me out of the Super Sky Surfer page.
still lots work to be done.

I was about to pull the trigger on the big 60" Pitts and noticed the price went up $30.
Guess I'm not ordering one now
